Yes, it’s true, there is a property coming on the market on Stuart Street soon! A property many may be interested in.
Well for starters, Stuart Street is a sought after, prestigious street located in the St. George’s Park area of Guelph. The surrounding homes are large, unique and expensive with many notable neighbours.
Next, the lot is 70 x 132, making it wide enough for an estate home if you are so inclined to tear down the existing one and re-build. As it exists, the property is also a good fit for a family looking to get into the neighbourhood at a discounted price and renovate over time. The house has it’s merits, but admittedly it shows signs of wear and tear and is being sold “as is” so please keep this in mind before you view.
Lastly, this home also fits the criteria for a “flip”. If you have the right skill set and team, in addition to a good sense of design, this home may be a consideration. The area will support a property value using the existing base structure and similar size, of up to 1.5 million. A demo and re-build could have a significantly higher value. You can clearly see this when you observe the surrounding homes.
So What’s Next?
It isn’t very often development land becomes available. All you need for this sought after plot of residential land in Fergus Ontario is 2.5 million dollars. This 36 acre parcel of land is within the boundaries of the Town of Fergus. Located within close proximity to the soon to be built Groves Memorial Hospital, this is a promising location. Currently zoned FD and ready for services.
It is no secret that people are migrating from Guelph, Kitchener, Waterloo and Georgetown towards the town of Fergus where homes prices are still reasonable and the quality of life is high. Invest in this property and reap the rewards.

The House on Grange
You may have visited this home before and not even realized it. 631 Grange Rd was the former model home when this subdivision was first built. A model home is designed to showcase the builders features and upgrades, and this house has them all. From unique rooms, tray ceilings, vaulted ceilings, skylights, to a walkout basement, the list goes on. Often model homes get extra bonus features such as an insulated, drywalled garage since this is where the sales office was located.
The property is perched on a prime lot with conservation land flanking it to the right and at the rear. Controlled by the Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA), this land is protected and cannot be built on. The summer months bring with them the full beauty of this treed canopy and wild grass. Privacy is at it’s maximum, creating an oasis in the city.
The location itself is also prime in another way. Being close to schools, children can safely walk to some of the best schools in the City. Parks are just steps away, and the choice is unlimited. Remember when you were a kid? You played outside at the park or in the woods. You rode your bike, or walked to the store to buy bubble gum or hockey cards? This neighbour brings that all back for you kids to enjoy!
Inside this home is beautiful. It doesn’t have the bling of newer more current homes, but it is certainly inspiring and envious. If you are a modern decor person then, you can “trick out” this home with ease, after all location is the beginning and end of all real estate conversations… The soaring ceilings in the impressive entrance way are unique and create a magical first impression for guests. The traditional, yet open floor plan blends the two design concepts wonderfully. Take in the views from the large windows soaking in the beauty of the forest.
The bedroom level at 631 Grange Rd features 4 large bedrooms, three of which have walk-in closets. A loft area is ideal for a lounge room or an open concept office. The main floor also features an office with a closet, making it flexible for a 5th bedroom.
In the basement create your dream in a large open area with a walkout to the back yard.

Who’s The Real Bread Winner?
Some Guelph homeowners may be shocked
We often talk about who the bread winner is in a family and for many families both parents are working. These days, if you are a home owner, there is a third bread winner and you might not even know it.
Some Guelph homeowners may be shocked to learn that in 2016 their home earned more money than they did! In 2016 the median sales price of a detached home in Guelph rose an astonishing $51,600! For semi-detached and townhouses the increase was 10% or roughly $31,000. CMHC predicts that in 2017, house prices will rise another 10%.
